I picked up this gem from a fellow member on Friday and so far I am delighted with it!

It is a 2002 E46 325 Ci M-Sport in a pretty rare colour if I may so myself:D

Spec as follows:
-Imola Red II
-M54B25 6 cylinder engine producing 192bhp
-19" CSL Replicas staggered fitment
-Lowered on Eibach Pro-Kit
-CS Splitters (I think :eek:) flush with bumper
-CCFL Angel eyes & smoked indicators
-Shadowline Grilles
-Black Cube Trim
-Black leather interior with electric memory seats
-Alpine Vehiclehub Pro Sound System with 6.5" touch screen and ipod connectivity
-Parrot CK3100 phone kit

The car has been maintained to a very high standard by its previous owner, so thankfully no major work is required. I have a couple of plans for the car which include:

-Freshen up the back with LED tail lights. I'm thinking about getting smoked tail lights to match the front indicators but need to do a bit more research! -OEM LED's fitted
Also, the rear diffuser is a little faded so might replace it with a new one or do a carbon fiber wrap:)
-Try and connect the steering controls to the Alpine unit but it looks tricky to say the least :rolleyes:
-Might get a new exhaust system (Eisenmann) but not any time soon

Next up:
-Replace the drive belt before it fails on me -DONE
-Replace gearbox and diff oil -DONE
-Adjust handbrake:rolleyes::D -DONE
-Get car detailed DONE by Chris and Dave
-Replace carbon fiber roundels for originals -DONE
-Install Chrome Grilles -DONE
-Retrofit OEM Xenons -DONE
-Replace VANOS seals and rocker cover gasket -DONE

And some pics :D
